my first thought is to jump to a console and load a different window manager and see what happens... my go-tos are fluxbox and sway.

"system wide" sounds like a config file

Yes... That's what I'm looking for. . the display/monitor config file where the change I made in the default is .  I'm booting to Manjaro on SD card, then using terminal to go to the internal drive where the default OS is located.  I assume it's in it's /etc folder.  I thought I had found it, edited the Tex file, saved, then shut down and pulled the SD/Manjaro card and attempted to boot from the internal drive again.  Still no go.  I can log in, and it seems to finish booting , but don't get a desktop screen after... Just a blank screen.

I can't make any changes in the GUI when booted from Manjaro, as it will only effect Manjaro on the SD... Not the internal OS config.  So, I am booting from Manjaro to make a manual change on the default internal drive.  Does that make sense?

Per this post, you need to make your edits to the xrandr config.
